Condolences & Memories (5 entries)

  • Please accept my sincere condolences on Diane’s passing. I worked with her in PICU for most of her years there. She ran a tight ship, and was the boss of the desk. If you needed something done, or needed to know how Diane always knew the answer. We were fortunate to have her in PICU. May her memory be a blessing ♥️ - Posted by: Karen Ackerman (PICU ) on: Jan 09, 2023

  • It's been more than 20 years since I last worked with Diane, but I've never forgotten her. She made our lives better in PICU by going well beyond her job description. I found out just how much when I moved to a new unit and expected the Diane work ethic was normal. She truly was one of a kind. Rest easy, Diane. - Posted by: Jan Fortier (Coworker) on: Dec 31, 2022

  • Diane's commitment to her work in the PICU was unmatched. She cared deeply about all of the children and family that passed through the unit. I learned a lot from Diane and shared many laughs and stories with her. I will never forget the love she had for dogs and always enjoyed hearing about her pets and her grandchildren. Rest easy now Diane; your work is done. - Posted by: Sarah (Co-worker) on: Dec 31, 2022
